👋Juan Gabriel (JuanGa) here, I’m the editor of this newsletter that highlights the work of Next Billion Advisors.

The ‘next billion’ ?

The global middle class is now bigger than it has ever been in written history — it is now more than half the world’s population, projected to grow to 4 billion by 2021 as five people enter the middle class every second. But this growth is not coming from the US or other developed economies, but in emerging markets. 88% of the additions to the middle class by 2030 will be in Asia.
